Hal Lasko's Work

After Hal Lasko had made his acquaintance with Microsoft Paint, he quickly mastered the program and became addicted to this digital medium.

From there on out, he dedicated all his time to painting on the computer, creating masterpiece after masterpiece and making a name for himself as the 'pixel painter'.

Even the loss of some of his vision in 2005 due to wet macular degeneration, and his hearing afterwards, haven't been able to stop him from creating his art. The currently 97-year old still spends about 10 hours a day moving pixels around.

Hal's artwork soon caught the attention of director Josh Bogdon. He documented Hal's story of 'discovering a new career well into his 80s'.

In the mean time, Hal Lasko's work didn't go unnoticed either as far as the art world goes. His work is momentarily on display at a local art exhibition and can also be admired and bought online. And he is not done yet.

Hal Lasko is a true inspiration for those who always wanted to be creative, but haven't gotten around to it. It is never too late to start as you just found out.

You don't have to believe me. Simply ask Hal Lasko. He can tell you all about it. Better yet; take a look at his art.

That says more then enough!
